Amiberry libsndio6.1 dependency failure

Post by 11110110100 »

Hi,

I'm trying to run the Amiberry installation from dietpi-software on a RPi 4 using ver 6.25.3 of DietPi but it fails due to a dependency issue. It's looking for libsndio6.1 but it says there is no release candidate.

I can use apt-get for libsndio7.0, but the install still fails even though it's > the 6.1 it's looking for.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

New to DietPi, and I just tried to install amiBerry on my Pi 3B(+?) and got this same error.
I don't need amiberry, I just wanted to see the superfast launch to an application.

Still no response to this. I’ve asked the same question over on Amiberry. V7 of the same library is there, but the dependency check is obviously looking for =6.1 and not >6.1.

I’m hoping this will be fixed in the next release of Amiberry with it’s full RPi4 support.

I had this same problem and I was able to work around it by manually installing libsndio6.1. Here's how.

(I'm assuming here that you are logged into the console as root).

First download the libsndio6.1 package:

Code: Select all

wget http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/pool/main/s/sndio/libsndio6.1_1.1.0-3_armhf.deb
Now install it:

Code: Select all

dpkg -i libsndio6.1_1.1.0-3_armhf.deb
Once the installation is complete, you might want to delete the download file to save space:

Code: Select all

rm libsndio6.1_1.1.0-3_armhf.deb
Now you can run dietpi-software to install Amiberry as before.

Quite a rework of our Amiberry implementation will be part of v6.26. You can help testing by applying the open beta: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/3131
